Awesome views

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Russell's in a lower unit, and it was just perfect. We seen pictures on line, but it is even more beautiful than the pictures. We could see the beach and the water as we sat on the couch, we could see the water from our dinner table. The outside patio has a bistro table just outside the doors of every unit. We would have coffee in the morning and watch the dolphins, and the sunsets every night, so relaxing. The owner is very nice and really wants guests to be happy. The manager's are a local and take very good care of Russells. The unit's are very well kept nice and clean. There is a washer & dryer no charge. Close to restaurants. We can't wait to come back to Russells. I would highly recommend staying. We meet other very nice people, we all laughed and said we never want to leave.

My 7th visit at Russell's

  • 5 of 5

This is 7th time that we have stayed at Russell's Retreat and it is as wonderful as it's ever been. The beach units are clean and modern, the views of the beach and water are the best. The managers are very helpful and always available. The owner bends over backwards to make you happy. This is a can't miss vacation spot for anyone.

We walked in to faded, stained and worn out uncomfortable furniture....all of it. The linens were old and towels/ wash cloths were tattered and needed to be thrown away. Ice maker didn't work. Vertical blinds broke. The top units share a balcony with no privacy or separation for safety. After discussing the rate with the owner of $$$ a night as advertised on VRBO, he charged more on my credit card. When I called him about it he was extremely angry and told me "not to ever come back"...don't worry! We found slugs on the nasty worn out carpet and some type of black worm on the ceiling. The pots and pans were horrible. Stay away from this place! (We left early and he refused to refund any of our money.)

Owner's Response: After 14 years of trying to please all of our guests and we have- we have one that was impossible to please. After breaking our blinds and other kitchen items and telling us repeatedly the first five days of her stay that everything was wonderful, she began to demand her money back near the end of the stay for her whole stay and drove me and our managers crazy with various complaints . When we cleaned her beach unit after her stay we found liquid bottles and beer cans everywhere .She left the beach unit filthy and - since the year 2000 I have never been through anything like this with a visitor. Thank Goodness 99% of our guests are wonderful. Bruce , Owner of Russell's Retreat
